Studio K: “Beyond the skin, folds”
What is a body? Where does the body end? Can it stretch, expand beyond its own limits, like rings in water activated by one center? Shape, volume, color, mass, softness, hardness, elasticity. Inhale, exhale. Inhale, exhale. The physical body carries its life, its own history. It makes impressions on the environment and the relationships it touches, and is itself marked by touch. Inhale, exhale. Inhale, exhale. The body leaves something behind, and takes something else with it. How to exist in a body that is in constant transformation and development? What exactly is a body in this time where we cannot physically meet or touch each other, when our shared experiences arise through screens? What is the digital weight of a human being?
“Beyond the skin, folds” is an exhibition that challenges the body’s boundaries and what it means to be (in) a body. Studio K invites you to a dynamic exhibition, consisting of works by six selected artists who approach the question Where does the body end? in different ways. Through the works’ diversity in expressions and mediums, the exhibition testifies to the organic human body and its various possibilities and functions. The exhibiting artists are: Evy Horpestad Tjåland (NO), Katinka Halland (NO), Eirik Melstrøm (NO), Franzisca Siegrist (Switzerland / Spain / NO), Astrid Hjortdal (DK) and Paulius Sliaupa (Lithuania). The exhibition is curated by Kari Ann Lending Kleiveland.

Due to infection control we will not have an event for the exhibition opening as we normally would (with a speech, flowers etc.). We thus hope for a more dynamic flow of visitors through all the opening hours.
Free entrance and coffee!
The event is supported by Rogaland Fylkeskommune and Time Kommune.
